Students of Palm Beach State, recently took a trip to West County Center, “A place where senior citizens cam partake in various programs that will enhance their overall person.” As said by the center’s manager of senior communicator center, Willie Millie II.  The event was a celebration of both Valentine’s Day and Black History Month. While there, the students got to chat with the seniors through various Valentine’s day themed games such as “Name that Love Song” and a classic game of jeopardy. The jeopardy game involved categories that were geared towards Black History Month and Valentine’s Day.
One senior in particular, Hazel Mosely, spoke out about West County Center by stating that she has been going to the center for the last four or five years to play bingo every morning. A particular program that really stands out to her are the computer classes. Hazel went on to say she has also made an abundance of friends since she has become a member of the West County community. Towards the ending of this fun filled day, home-made Valentine cards (made by some of the students) were passed out to all the seniors. Hence, sealed with love.

Creative minds at work.
